Expert Answers about Loctite

  • What is the Best Sealant for Trailer and RV Roof
  • I strongly recommend the Loctite Urethane Sealant, # L0150811. I used this sealant on my trailer when I replaced a roof vent about 4 years ago and it is still going strong. This sealant does a great job at holding up to dramatic temperature changes without shrinking, drying up or cracking. It is gray in color, but it can be painted. I used a white gloss paint to match to sheen of the trailer's roof. This sealant works great on all types of trailer materials including metal, wood, and...

  • Recommended Roof Sealant for Box Cargo Trailer
  • If you are needing to apply sealant around a vent or other component on the roof of your box cargo trailer, I recommend using the Loctite Urethane Sealant # L0150811. This is an excellent sealant that will apply as a thick liquid or in seams to create a weatherproof bond. It will do a great job of sealing up any area on the roof of your trailer where water could potentially enter . It will bond to metal, wood, glass, plastic, masonry, and concrete and will withstand any temperature changes. I...

  • Is Loctite Required When Installing a Trailer Hitch
  • In most cases Loctite is not required when installing a trailer hitch, but it would not be a bad idea. I suggest using the Loctite Blue Stick Threadlocker, # LT37643, which will provide a secure grip and protect against water and grime.

  • Recommendation for Adding Battery to Toolbox on Travel Trailer Tongue
  • Depending on how you mount the battery inside the tongue mounted tool box like # MT80350, you may or may not need longer battery cables. Since your battery is already mounted in this location, you most likely just need to drill holes and reconnect the same wires. I recommend using the Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker # LT37467 to seal those holes to protect moisture from becoming an issue. If you need to run longer cables, I recommend you not splice in a portion,...

  • Sealant Recommendation for Sealing Windows and Vents on Camper Trailer
  • For what you are looking to do we recommend the Loctite Urethane Sealant, part # L0150811, to help seal the trailer from the elements. The Loctite urethane sealant is applied as a thick liquid to parts before assembly or in seams after assembly to create a waterproof bond in a variety of applications. It can seal doors, windows, vents and other areas in enclosed trailers where water could enter.

  • Removing Loctite Rearview Mirror Adhesive From Windshield
  • I spoke with my contact for Loctite and she said there is not an easy method or product that can remove the Loctite Rearview Mirror Adhesive, part # LT37438. She said the adhesive will soften when exposed to heat, but cautioned to wait until a hot day and attempt to remove with a razor blade. It is not recommended to try and apply direct heat to a specific area of the windshield because heat concentrated in a small area can cause the windshield to shatter.

  • What is Loctite 242 Made Of
  • Loctite 242, # LT37477, is made of a liquid synthetic polymer that cures in an anaerobic environment, which basically means that it will not harden in the presence of air, and it cures when it is sandwiched in the threads between active metals like a nut and bolt. I have included a table, see link, that shows the make up of Loctite for you to review.

  • Trailer Brakes on Airstream Trailer are Weak Even After Adjusting Them
  • Usually when the brakes start to get weak it is because they need to be adjusted. If you had them adjusted and the problem persists it could be a problem with the brake magnets. First, you can visually inspect the magnets and if you can see the windings coming through they will need to be replaced. To further test the magnets you can follow the help article I have linked. Inspect the wiring to the trailer brakes, the magnet ground wires, and the trailer connectors on truck and trailer....

  • Available Products for Sealing RV Sink Drain
  • If the sink in your 1996 Jayco pop-up camper trailer is leaking where the drain and sink bottom join together then you can use plumber's putty to re-seal it unless something is actually broken. This material is typically grey in color and can be found at any local hardware store. It remains soft and flexible (it does not dry or cure to a solid condition like a glue or caulk) so it keeps a good seal. If you also need to seal the sink's outer mounting flange to the countertop you can usually...

  • Is there a Way to Lock D-Ring Shackles to Front Of Jeep Wrangler Bumper
  • Most Jeep guys leave the D-rings inside the Jeep or torque down the pins so tight that it would take a very determined thief to get them. You can also try a thread locker like the part # LT37420 to make them even harder to remove.

  • I spoke to my contact at Loctite and she said that the Loctite Urethane Sealant # L0150811 that your referenced should do well to seal lexan polycarb to a gel coat or fiber glass on your 1996 Winnebago motorhome skylight.

  • Mounting a SpaceCadet Cargo Box on Nissan Xterra Crossbars
  • We do have mounting brackets that will work for the larger OEM crossbars on your Nissan Xterra. You can use the Thule Replacement QM3 - Quick Mount Hardware - Extended Length Adapter Kit # TH05075 which has brackets that accept crossbars that are up to 3-5/8" wide and the 3-1/2" long bolts will be more than enough for your crossbars. This hardware is not specific to Yakima accessories so there will likely be some modification necessary with your SpaceCadet cargo box such as enlarging...

  • Green Loctite Recommendation for Squeaky Bottom Bracket Bearings
  • Green Loctite like part # LT37424 should work very well for you, and in the event you need to remove the bearings the trick to releasing green Loctite is heat. Some use a soldering iron to heat the area enough so that it releases. You will use this to secure the bearing cup to the bottom bracket just to be clear.

  • Is Loctite Disc Brake Quiet Stick # LT40300 an Adhesive or Lubricant

  • Lippert 6-Point Level-Up System Foot Pad Torque Requirement
  • For the 6-point Level-Up System by Lippert, I made a call to the manufacturer to ensure you would receive correct information. Lippert said that when you bolt the footpads to the jacks, you need to torque them to 132 ft-lb. They said to make sure to use Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube, # LT37420 on the footpad bolts and do not try to remove the bolt once it is tightened as removing the bolt could result in damage to the cylinder.

  • Can Loctite Thread Sealant 545 be Used with Potable Water Systems
  • Loctite Thread Sealant 545 # LT37482 is not designed for potable water systems and should not be used. There are chemicals in it that can be harmful if ingested. If joining copper pipes I recommend using solder to join non-threaded pieces and thread seal tape such as # A05-0265 on the threads of threaded pieces. Plumbers dope can be used on the plastic PVC-like pipes; available at hardware stores. If the PVC pipes are not threaded you should use primer and the appropriate adhesive for joining...

  • Can Loctite Disc Brake Quiet Stick be Used on Shimmed Pads
  • I spoke with my contact at Loctite and she stated that the Disc Brake Quiet Stick # LT40300 referenced in your question can be used on shimmed pads. You will just want to make sure it does not come in contact with any surface that is in friction or in constant contact with the rotor. I have included the user guide for this part that you can also look over.

  • Replacement Roof Vent Seals for a 1969 Holiday Rambler
  • I have a solution to your leaking roof vents. Unfortunately, we do not carry a replacement seal for your roof vents. I can give you two options that might work for your trailer. First, is to replace the whole roof vent. For this we will need the measurements of the vent to make sure you can get the correct vent. Most of the standard vents that are installed in trailer measure 14-1/4 x 14-1/4 inches. However, some older model trailers have had different size vents. In these cases,...

  • Can You Drill Holes in a Thule Cargo Box to Move it Forward and Clear the Rear Hatch
  • Yes, you can drill new holes in your Thule Frontier Cargo Box in order to clear the rear hatch on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon. I also recommend using part # LT37467 to cover up the old holes so water doesn't get in. The only thing you need to be aware of when drilling new holes is how you load the cargo box. Since the front of the box is going to be moved further away from the crossbars you will just want to make sure you keep the heavier items towards the rear and centered on the crossbars.

  • I searched the Loctite industrial site and the Locktite 5699 Grey Prod. # LT37464, is the same as the 18718 that you referenced. The product comes in different sizes containers and different container amounts to a case and the 18718 is just a variant of that.

  • Can the Locktite Sleeve Retainer 640 be used on a International Tractor with a 966 Diesel Engine
  • I have spoken with my contacts at Locktite and they have informed me that the Locktite # LT37424 is rated for use on cylinder sleeves. Additionally, there are 2 conditions that have to be met before you consider using this product. 1. That there would be no oxygen contact with the Locktite product. 2. There has to be metal to metal contact. I believe this might be the case for your situation, but I am not sure if it is applicable on the counterbore area. Locktite is applicable...

  • Recommended Parts to Re-Install Lock Mechanism on 1997 Thule Rooftop Cargo Box
  • Thule does not supply the cargo box lock mounting rivets as replacement parts; this is because these are not intended to be removed. But you certainly can substitute other hardware, and that does not necessarily even have to be rivets, to re-install the lock assembly on your '97 Thule cargo box. Since this hardware will see some exposure to the elements I suggest that you select stainless-steel bolts, washers and nuts. Your local full-service hardware store should have a decent assortment...

My contact advised that so long as this silicone/copper gasket maker is used within its specified temperature and gap size limits it should be fine for use as you intend. This product is suitable to seal both gases and fluids and works best when filling gaps between mating surfaces that measure between...
